i've tried the find & replace dialog and it seems really promising to me!

i don't know what the goals are in implementing the search and replace function so i wonder if my remarks will be usefull...

however, i try to post my first impressions even if they may be obvious:

- search should scan the whole chained text (probably already adressed in
  summary of the bug report).
- one should be able to s&r from the story editor.
- the dialog should retain the last search performed (or even the last n s&r in
  every field).
- it should be possible to edit the text frame while the dialog is open (the
  alternative could be a "search again" item in the menu); it should even be
  possible to change frame while the dialog is open.

that's it! and now i go back to my "serious" "work"

- if you do a search and nothing is found the cursor should not move from
  its actual position
- i understand that one has to choose between sub- and superscript... but, now
  you can't deselect the sub/superscript buttons once you have clicked on one of

Yes, the super/sub script buttons should turn off. Franz will fix that I'm sure.
